Scenic Helicopter Flights Over The Okavango Delta-3

Scenic Helicopter Flights Over The Okavango Delta

A scenic flight over Botswana’s Okavango Delta is an opportunity you cant afford to miss.

Moments after departing you’ll enjoy the breath-taking views seen only from a helicopter. Experience the crystal-clear water channels meandering their way through lagoons, while journeying deep into the lush green flood plains to explore the abundant wildlife of the Okavango region.

The doors are removed (don’t worry, there are seatbelts) for an even better photographic experience while flying over some of the most remote, uninhabited and wild areas of the Okavango Delta.

Scenic flights are conducted any time of day, with keen photographers (such as ourselves) usually preferring the early morning.

With two guests both seated on the left hand side of the chopper we will position ourselves and circle around scenic features and wildlife, giving you unobstructed views. I will be seated in the back right (There is no cost associated with me joining the flight based on 2 guests flying) and will coach you through settings and opportunities whilst also communicating with the pilot.

To get a better idea of what the experience is like I created a short video taken during my most recent Botswana Wilderness Safari.
